Summary: Too buggy for me. I have mid 2012 macbook pro. I'd spend 5-10 minutes getting everything set up and walk away from my desk. monitors and cpu would sleep and then I'd have to set it all up again because the external displays wouldn't wake.

For many, this doesn't present as a problem but for someone who uses multiple devices requiring 500 mA power output I had to purchase a power...
